Department 57 (Philipsburg) was dispatched to a building fire in area of Fifth and Spruce Streets. Initial companies arrived on scene to a converted apartment building with heavy fire showing from the second floor. Command requested the second alarm struck and a special call for Quint 527. 527 responded on the run with 6 volunteers. 527 arrived on scene as the fourth arriving truck and took the address with fire showing through the roof and from the second floor windows. Crews were in the process of an exterior attack so 527’s crew set up for master streams and handled additional master stream deck guns and hand lines. As the fire was being extinguished, crew members threw ground ladders and cleared remaining windows. Once Command deemed safe to stop exterior ops and go interior, 527 crews split up due to the size of the building and took multiple hand lines and hooks to extinguish the remaining fire from different sides of the building. 527 operated on scene for approximately 5 hours before being released.
